Abstract—Norovirus infection is an epidemic stomach
disorder caused by norovirus. Humans can be infected by
norovirus regardless of age, gender and location. Infection is
now occurring sporadically throughout the world. Norovirus
maintains its infectiousness even after being heated in 60
degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. Symptoms of norovirus
infection include diarrhea, stomach, vomiting, and nausea.
Although astrovirus is less known than norovirus, it also causes
the very similar symptoms as norovirus. Norovirus causes
dehydration, pyrexy, drowsiness, diarrhea, and etc.
Furthermore, both viruses do not have specific antiviral agents. For the research, our goal is to compare and contrast norovirus and astrovirus for deeper understanding; we seek for any possibilities of connections in the treatment of the two viruses by using Apriori algorithm. Finding any relationship between the treatments of two viruses will devote to the overall enhancement of the health of humankind.
Index Terms—Norovirus, astrovirus, fasta, apriori algorithm.
